The Mud Life Issue 16 July 2020

Turner’s Torque

It’s so good to get out once again, isn’t it? I’m sure everyone in England (Wales and Scotland, you’ll just have to wait) will agree it was a huge relief when shutdown was relaxed.

During the last month there was a huge kerfuffle over some green lanes in Cumbria being graded by a off-road tour company, both in the way that they did it, and the very fact that they did it at all. The (not so) funny thing is, when the Council put a TRO on the only road that goes to Parkamoor, not a peep was heard! Don’t panic, the Traffic Regulation Order was put in place due to anti-social parking and an official letter sent to James Dixon, the GLASS rep for Cumbria states that we can still enjoy Parkamoor – Lauren covers this in her regular Laning Life column.

We have a couple of new features this month, the first is our 6 of the Best. I know it isn’t new in the magazine world, but it is for us, and I’m beginning with drawer systems.

Another newbie is from my old mate Simon Hastelow who has an interesting article about his past loves. If his name rings a bell then you may recognise him as both one of the founding owners of the Difflock forum, and more recently he’s also been at the helm of many motoring mags, Land Rover World being the most prominent. So everyone stop what you’re doing right now, and say “Hello Simon!”. Don’t be shy, he only bites when he’s hungry.

As you can appreciate, a lot of magazines have really struggled over the last few months, and not just motoring mags either, with some of the smaller publications going bust due to dwindling advertisers combined with big bills. Luckily we have relatively low overheads, as it’s mainly just the two of us who create the mag, so The Mud Life is happily trundling along. Huge thanks go out to our few loyal advertisers, and of course our wonderful Ko-Fi supporters who every month ‘buy’ us the odd mug of hot chocolate. Seriously, it’s really appreciated, thank you.

Whilst I have your attention, do me a favour and sign up to our new Mega Mud Lifers facebook page, ta.
